One event on May 28, 2022 at 2:00 pm
Smuin Contemporary Ballet wraps up its 28th season with the vibrant program, Dance Series 2: P.S. Forever Smuin, featuring four diverse ballets from established dancemakers and rising choreographic voices, with performances in San Francisco, Mountain View, and Carmel. Audiences will be delighted by the return of acclaimed dancemaker Val Caniparoli’s playful Confessions, an inventive work that weaves a captivating narrative set to a compelling soundtrack by American contemporary classical composer Nico Muhly and Faroese singer/songwriter Teitur. Also on the bill is Amy Seiwert’s Renaissance, a powerful dance loosely inspired by the 385-mile “Women’s Wall” protest in India to create awareness of gender equality, set to an empowering a cappella soundtrack by Oakland’s Kitka Women’s Vocal Ensemble. Smuin artists Tessa Barbour and Brennan Wall will also expand their creations presented in the 2021 Choreography Showcase and in last spring’s “Smuin al Fresco” program, premiering these new works on the company’s mainstage. This program will also be offered as a virtual on-demand streaming option beginning in late May and running for several weeks.
